Review:

The beautifully arranged chamber winds instrumentation of these 18 transcriptions features pairs of flutes, oboes, and clarinets with soprano sax, alto sax (in place of horns), bassoon I/alto clarinet, and bassoon II/bass clarinet. Some of the gems included are preludes and fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier, Air on the G-string, Concerto for Two Violins, and the chorales "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," and "Sleepers, Awake." This is an opportunity for a selected group of players to learn expressive interpretation while performing quintessential chamber music of great substance. All of these selections could be ideal, refreshing concert material. --The Instrumentalist, July 2011
